PETA Wants Vegan Pizza in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

“Modern kids are embracing vegan food, so why shouldn’t modern Ninja Turtles?”

If you know the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, you know at least two things: You know that they are heroes on the half-shell and you know what their favorite food is. 

                                               

But wait? Is that cheese and pepperoni Michelangelo is eating? FOR SHAME. 

PETA has asked Nickelodeon to have the turtles to have the turtles eat vegan pizza in the upcoming movie Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In a press release, PETA stated its case:

“Modern kids are embracing vegan food, so why shouldn’t modern Ninja Turtles?” asks PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. “Vegan pizza is popular, and it’s healthier and far kinder to animals than old-fashioned dairy cheese pizza. PETA thinks that’s something the ‘Heroes in a Half Shell’ would support.”

In a letter to Nickleodeon's president Cyma Zarghami, PETA's Lauren Thomasson said "I’ve got to believe that the Turtles would be willing to help save other animals’ lives."

Must every single thing be about saving the planet? Even pizza?
